We had the good fortune of connecting with Eiryana Bennett and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Eiryana, is there something you can share with us that those outside of the industry might not be aware of?
Not everyone is prepared nor qualified to be on screen. Often times when I tell someone that I interview people or have my own talk show the first thing they say is “oh you should interview me”! And after I run down the list of criteria in order to be a guest, it’s easy to see that Arena of the Mynd is entertainment on screen and business off screen. I take the time to study each guest’s craft/service so that I can create questions tailored to their work/business, I buy/sample products, scout recording locations, create broll footage and so much more! Therefore guest have to come equipped and ready.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
The one thing I want people to know about Arena of the Mynd is the meaning behind the name of the show. The name Arena of the Mynd came from my need to shed light on any and every topic you could think of from food, to mental health, to makeup, to painting, to fitness, and the list goes on! I felt as though my mind was an arena where all of these topics needed to be seen & heard. So I decided to create a show that embodied what’s happening inside my Mynd.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.

I’d honestly just like to shoutout any and everyone who has supported me since the beginning. Shoutout to those of you who actually watch the interviews all the way through & those who subscribe to my channel, it doesn’t go unnoticed!
